Question about Radio Communications

1 Answer

Galaxy 88hl My galaxy dx88hl is a monster that on low has a deadeye of almost 2 and swinging almost 20. My amp is a kl Italy 503, a low input amp. Will I damage the amp? Do I need to turn something down? It's a very crunchy sounding radio, the way it's set.

    ("ucrunchy" is this case meant "good". My only real concern is whether the amp is capable of withstanding an actual pep of 20+ watts. I'm not sure that on a mod monster like this, that a low deadeye is enough, if I'm swinging that much. The amp works well. It's not getting hot. It'll deadeye over 250, and swing 100 more, on am.

Always check your swr's.. it should be fine with those settings.
90% amps 1 to 5watts input is fine and then the modulation wattage of yours is good. most can take 50w RMS.
use short coax jumpers.. make sure the radio doesn't have the modulation limiter cut. and it is on frequency. and it should be good. maybe try putting little bit of wd40 on the microphone switch to see if thats the crunching sound..??
also make sure you have enough amperage.. and a good heavy gauge power wire to the amp..
if you have any more details let everyone know.. may help narrow down a problem.

SOURCE: used galaxy 88hl

If you have a receipt for it and you had it less than 2 years it can go to Galaxy in Calif. if is defective. Just go the the Galaxy tech support webpage and follow the directions for an RA #. They do good work. If you want to send it to a top notch repair shop try Dons CB in PA. They are a real Galaxy warranty service center. The # is 814-898-1046

You just have to lower your RF power so that the radio is putting out about a 2 watt dead key. Any higher and you will over drive the finals and burn out the final

On my radio I need the settings for the knobs because other people can hear me but I only get static and cannot hear them. Thanks


Band should be E Band high/low button on high 10 khz off AM selected
To check that you have done this correctly frequency counter will read 27.185 plus or minus 5 khz. This is of course proved you have a radio that is converted for 11 meter cb frequencies.

What are the buts & nubs go to make the cb work which ones trun or push ?


Assuming you're talking about the Galaxy DX88HL, and assuming the mad has been done to reach the 11 meter band, you press the band button in, that put's you to the E-H banks, select the E/A bank which is high bank E. with the frequency counter on, it should read 26.965 for channel 1. If it reads 26.975, then your +10KHz switch is on, turn it off. you'll then be properly set for 26.965 (ch.1) - 27.405 (ch.40). You also have 5 "hidden" frequencies, these are at ch. 3, 7, 11, 15 and 19. To get to the "hidden" frequencies, go to any of the channels listed and turn on your 10KHz switch. Those frequencies are not attainable on radios that do not have a +10KHz switch or a clarifier capable of sliding that far over. To do repairs and for a full list of schematics, diagrams and so forth, I suggest this site, it has the most coverage of the Galaxy DX88HL as well as other galaxies that I've been able to find. http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/galaxy/dx88hl/index.htm .
